Ever since Malaika Arora revealed that she will not be a part of Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3, fans are curious to know who will be doing the item number – ‘special song’ – in the film. While Kareena Kapoor Khan stepped into Malaika’s shoes in Dabangg 2 with her song Fevicol Se, Dabangg 3 may see Salman Khan grooving to some peppy beats of an item number. According to a report in a daily, Salman Khan is all set to show his dancing prowess in an item number in Dabangg 3.
A source close to the development informed the daily that the popular Munni Badnaam song will be recreated but with a twist. The source said, “Malaika Arora’s foot-tapping item number Munni Badnam Hui will be re-created and will feature Salman. This time, it will be presented to the audiences with a different twist.”
The source added, “The lyrics will undergo a drastic change too. And Salman has decided to wear the overcoat of this Badnami himself and the song will be called Munna Badnaam Hua.”
Salman Khan began shooting for Dabangg 3 on April 1 in Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh. The title song of the film was also shot on the ghats of river Narmada in Madhya Pradesh. After completing the Madhya Pradesh schedule, the team is currently shooting in Mumbai.
Apart from Salman Khan, the film also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Sudeep and Arbaaz Khan in pivotal roles. Dabangg 3 will go back in the past and will show Chulbul Pandey attending college. In the flashback scenes, Salman will be seen romancing another actress.
Directed by Prabhudheva, Dabangg 3 is scheduled to release on December 20, 2019.
